The Mount of Olives Hotel is an affordable family-run hotel situated at the summit of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, next door to the Chapel of Ascension. We are literally surrounded by famous churches and holy sites mentioned in the Bible including, among others, the Garden of Gethsemene, the Tomb of the Virgin Mary, the Church of all Nations, Dominus Flevit, and the Pater Noster (Lord's Prayer).
Our hotel commands a dramatic view of the Old City of Jerusalem and the magnificient Dome of the Rock. We are ideal for independent travellers, budget conscious pilgrims, Holy Land tour groups, and archaeological excursions.
From Ben Gurion airport, take Highway One east to Jerusalem. It is approx. a 50 minute drive. Upon arrival, follow the signs to the Old City. Go clockwise around the historic golden walls of Jerusalem from Damascus Gate to Lion's Gate. The incline of the Mount of Olives is just opposite Lion's Gate. Continue along the road a bit further until you reach the The Garden of Gethsemene. Look for the Church of All Nations, turn left and continue eastward & up. After a fairly steep climb, the twisting & narrow road will suddenly end in a 'T'. Turn right and drive about 15 meters. The hotel is located exactly next door to the Chapel of the Ascension.
